Wooden crates have so many uses and can be a clever feature item in your home.
Here’s 6 different ways you can use them.
1. Keep your cushions and throws next to the couch

2. Display Shelving
A few years ago a friend and I found a bunch of old wooden fruit crates on the side of the road (during hard rubbish collection) and grabbed 3 each!
I immediately found a place to set mine up at home and used it like display boxes/shelves, with ornaments and magazines stored inside and on top.
This is the set up at our old home
3. Sneaky Storage
When we moved to our granny flat I knew I had limited space but keeping my crates was a must for me!
I found both decorative and practical ways to incorporate them into our new living space. 2 are on top of each other as decorative display similar to before, and the other is a convenient cleaning storage box. As you can see below, it is up against the bookshelf and wall with our Enjo floor cleaner and dust pan & brush inside.
As you can image there’s not a lot of space in our granny flat so finding sneaky storage solutions was essential. Another crate that I bought at an op shop stores our vacuum cleaner neatly under this table.
4. Mounted to the wall
A more permanent display shelving solution. Looks great.

5. Use them with an old window to create a rustic coffee table
Maybe not a common use but I love the creativity of this idea.
